    Surprisingly we didn't get a single drop of rain from the storm. A little wind and gloomy looking but that was it. It actually feels like fall now too

    I had a couple of limbs that were broken from a previous storm fall out of my tree in front yard. Took to the curb this morning cause Garbage truck runs today and will pick them. Score!

    Yes, it works very well for getting more low end torque. Im been debating that myself, but i think im going to go with 5.29 just because of all the extra weight. Prolly somewhere around 2 - 2500 range for both. You do the pull the diffs yourself would be a lil cheaper.

    4WP stores will do it for 1000 labor plus whatever parts cost and you bring the truck in and drop it off.
    ECGS wiil regear for about 1500 total if you ship the diffs to them.

    these are just base numbers, there's a few options such as lockers that will change costs

    if you go auto 5.29 is manageable, if manual probably 4.88, but most manuals don't regear at 35's, the manual crowd says stock is manageable at that size, but offroad people regear just for ease of use. most autos want to regear at 33s.

    Tune will be 700.

    Anyone have any recommendations for camping in TNF? I'd like to avoid 600-1&2. Near water or an overlook similar to 600-1 would be ideal! Only places I've been in TNF are down 600 and camped at Sweetwater lake before. Never actually camped at Cheaha, but been there plenty times.

    Yes, sitting at Mission Control Center Moscow right now. It has been exciting. Waiting for some video of the Astronauts returning to Baikonur and an interview with the NASA administrator before we can pack up and head back to town. They say the 2nd day is bad for jet lag, but with all the excitement, it hasn't hit me yet.

    IMO it doesn't get much better than Sweetwater Lake. Take a kayak or flat bottom and go to the opposite shore of the parking area. There is a fire pit just up the hill.

    Cheaha Falls is a nice spot too. You can camp right next to the waterfall. You will have to leave your truck and walk about 0.25 miles to the spot.
